Cinnamon Tea Cake - post number 1,000!

Happy Sunday everyone!  These weekends seem to go by so quickly don't they?  As do 1,000 posts really.  So this is it, the 1,000th post and of course it's baking.  Why wouldn't it be?  Lately it's been all about cinnamon for me, and this cake recipe is and oldie but a goodie.  It's scrumptious warm but also great with a cuppa..

120g butter
230g caster sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
180g self raising flour
60g plain flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup milk

30g butter, melted extra
1 tb caster sugar, extra
1 tb cinnamon, extra

Preheat oven to 180 degrees c

Cream your butter, sugar and vanilla extract together until light and fluffy - about five minutes.
Add eggs and beat until smooth.  Remove electric beaters or bowl from mixer stand.

Into the bowl, mix half the flours and cinnamon and half the milk.  Stir through, then the remaining flours/cinnamon milk.

Pour into your greased baking tin
Bake in oven for 40-50 minutes - use the skewer method to test.

When baked, turn out onto your plate or stand and then allow to cool for about 5 minutes.  Brush on the extra melted butter and then sprinkle over the combined remaining cinnamon and sugar.
